Cooperative mainstem lower Truckee WQ program

Summary: 
Cooperative mainstem lower Truckee WQ program includes data collected by DRI under a Truckee River Fund grant to evaluate changing water conditions through the urban corridor here in the Truckee Meadows, in tandem with the state of Nevada and Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facilities to augment efforts by the Storm Water Permit Coordinating Committee (City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County). Truly a great outcome for the CMP project.
